Young People Making a Difference in their Communities

May 29, 2018

[FERNDALE] – The 2018 class of Sullivan Renaissance interns have begun their work to care for gardens and other public spaces in communities throughout Sullivan County.  From small planter boxes and established gardens, to park enhancements and Main Street revitalization, they are working alongside community volunteers to make a difference in their communities.

The Internship Program is a partnership between Sullivan Renaissance and the Center for Workforce Development that provides paid work experiences for Sullivan County youth between the ages of 16 and 20.  In addition to caring for gardens and public spaces, interns participate in weekly meetings where they discuss current issues, meet with local leaders, develop leadership skills and explore career options.  They will also choose, plan and implement a service learning project. 

“We have fourteen bright, energetic, diverse young people this year. Our hope is that through this program they will develop a sense of place and find their voice on issues that are important to them,” said Anne-Louise Scandariato, Volunteer Program Manager at Sullivan Renaissance. 

The 2018 Sullivan Renaissance interns are:

           Mikai Baptiste –Callicoon Business Association

           Emily Carey – Village of Woodridge

           Sebastian Dao – Town of Tusten

           Mikayla DeGraw – Town of Fallsburg
